How To Establish a Writing Habit

Have knee replacement surgery.

Today is a day for patience.  I’m going to have to find a lot of that in the next 6 months.  After x-rays of my left knee, there is knee replacement surgery in my future (as soon as I can get it done).  I’ll have to be patient with myself, my spouse, and the world.

That’s going to require a change in several planned activities in the next 6 months.  First an MRI tomorrow to see if the pinched nerve in my lower back will relax itself after I start walking on my knee correctly.  Then a visit to the Surgeon on Oct. 2nd.  We’ll not be going to the Moab Rock and Gem Show mid-October, nor the Hurricane Rock and Gem Show in early November.

The goal will be to be up and mobile for the Homestead Christmas Show in December.  And since I’ll be doing a walk, sit, walk, sit routine until then, I should have enough sitting time to get merchandise done especially for that show.

I’m grateful to have a new housekeeping service to keep things up to snuff.  And Tracy is smiling about having to cook for two weeks.  The first thing out of his mouth – “remember you have to eat whatever I serve”.  Let’s hope for take-out.

If all goes well, I should be up and walking so I can enjoy the Quartzsite and Tucson Rock Shows and do a little rockhounding with Tracy in the mix.  The left knee joint is bone on bone and will never get better until something is done with it.  So – here I go.

But this also means I’ll have no excuse not to write every morning.  And by the time I would be back up and thinking of doing other things I should have a wonderful morning pattern of writing established.  30+ days usually sets a pattern.  I’ll take it.  I want to blog, write Historical Fiction “Eliza B” and my Children’s Book on #Enough.  Won’t all happen in six months, but could get very close.

I’m going to use my platform to write these stories, so stay tuned – – – – – – – –

About Jana Hassett

Growing up a Friday the 13th baby can be stressful without permission to use your magic wisely. But my journey has been full of once-in-a-lifetime adventures and a joy (for the most part).

I’ve raised two daughters; have two grandchildren; created my own very successful line of beadwoven jewelry and ornaments; had leadership positions in political organizations; worked for a member of Congress; been a Journalist with a weekly column; a Book Reviewer; and now a Blogger.

Over time this blog will contain my writings, book reviews, magazine articles, and ramblings (known as a platform) I’ll use for the Historical Fiction I’ve started writing. Please ask questions, make comments, and suggest writing ideas. I value your input and ideas.
